MAMA June’s daughter Lauryn "Pumpkin" Shannon thanked “all the moms” on Instagram in a Mother’s Day tribute but snubbed her own mom.
The 20-year-old is currently caring for her little sister, Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Shannon in the home she shares with husband Josh Efird and their daughter Ella, 2.
As celebrities today flocked to social media to wish their mums, sisters and significant people in their lives who’ve acted as a parent, Pumpkin decided to do the same but with a difference.
Posting a series of photos of her daughter and sister on her account, she wrote: “Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms. These two have made me a better person & helped me become a better mother. I’ll always have you two. 🤞🏼🥰 @honeybooboo”
Pumpkin and Honey Boo Boo have a complicated relationship with their mom, Mama June Shannon, due to the 40-year-old’s legal troubles ever since running off with her bad news boyfriend, Geno Doak
Speaking to ETOnline, Pumpkin described her own relationship with her mom as "an on-and-off thing."
She said: "We don't talk every day, but when she does call me I answer and we'll have a five, 10 minute conversation that's not about very much.
“But other than that I haven't physically seen her in a couple of months."
Fans recently saw that Alana has been left in bits fearing she's a "burden" to her troubled mom and family in the latest explosive episode of Mama June: From Not To Hot.
The child star went to see professional medic Dr. Ish after she was seen pretending to snort cocaine on an Instagram Live video.
The action was all the more pertinent as the 14-year-old's parent, Mama June, has a drug problem and was arrested for possession of crack cocaine in March 2019.
Mama June sold her Georgia home at a huge loss for fast cash in October 2019.
Then in December 2019, June and Geno were accused of causing $1,000 worth of damage after trashing their hotel room.
Recent events have seen the family attempting and failing to get their mother into rehab.
In a shocking turn of events, last month Alana posted a live video of her on social media pretending to snort cocaine.
Pumpkin, who's really named Lauryn, could be heard yelling at her younger sister: "Alana, seriously, what the f**k?
"You know you’re not supposed to be doing this kind of stuff. Jokingly snorting cocaine. It’s not funny. It’s not a joke.
"Take your a** to your room and think about it. This s**t can be really bad for all of us."
Alana responded: “It was just a joke!”
